Bramfield put in a career best performance to stroll away with the 2020 Kimba Cup run at Port Lincoln On Sunday.

The Darryl Carrison trained mare settled at the rear of the field, as is her normal racing pattern, before being set alight down the side of the track.

With plenty to offer leading jockey Todd Pannell let her down in the home straight and she bolted away for a soft win by over four lengths. She proved a class above the opposition with the big weight of 60kg.

Bramfield loves racing here having won nine races from her 19 starts on the track, she also has two very creditable seconds in Port Lincoln Cups.

Neva Doubt Us put in his usual honesty performance but had no answer when the star mare applied the heat over the concluding stages.

Penong Cup winner Abbi Fede was held up at a vital stage and did a good job to grab third in a photo over Sizzling Bullett.

Abbi Fede has been in work a long time and had a good season over here the West Coast winning five races for John Hickmott. He will now enjoy a well earned rest.

The day started with The Master enjoying a great time of it in front to break his maiden status in the opening event for Byron Cozamanis despite being a little easy in betting.

Another example of how vital it is to get the right run in transit on this track unlike his previous start.

The well supported Marianne Ruby was patiently ridden early and came with a long wide run to gun down He's Abel to win race three for Simon Drewitt.

Which Kid continued her recent good form winning the fourth race.

This Rocky King trained mare was given a great ride in transit by Jake Toeroek and proved to strong late for Don't Dismiss and Galaxy Falls.

Outsider Scenic Mint lobbed into a perfect spot in the Benchmark 58 event over the sprint trip and when the rails run presented in the straight he had the ability to push through and hold off the late burst of Willander Princess who loomed to win at the 200 meter mark.

In the last race Leonarda travelled well in the run and once into the clear was too strong for Angels Wish and leader Onward.

Port Augusta trainer Dennis McMahon must be respected when he brings horses here - has had a great season thus far going at 27.8 per cent winners to runners.

Racing has concluded on the West Coast with the cancellation of the Streaky Bay Cup meeting this weekend. The Port Augusta season starts on April 19.
